Run Like A Movie Star: Hollywood’s Newest Half Marathon

Affectionately nicknamed Tinseltown or La-La Land, since 1900 Southern California has been the epicenter of film production.

While the primary reason it saw an inflow from the industry was to evade pesky motion picture film patents held by Thomas Edison, the second (and more relevant to half marathons) reason was the predictably sunny weather and diverse terrain for movie backdrops.

Over the last 120 years, Hollywood has been the destination for iconic films, actors, and actresses whose depictions on the silver screens have impacted our lives. 

From Abbott and Costello to Audrey Hepburn, Hollywood has shaped global culture.

While the Hollywood streets and skies are filled with stars – we haven’t seen a half marathon like this through Hollywood until now with the launch of Run Hollywood.

Run Hollywood’s registration opens this week and the race debuts October 15, 2023 with a half marathon, 10K, and 5K distance.

Run Hollywood is the only running event to take place exclusively in Hollywood, California. 

The race course will take participants on the ultimate tour of Tinseltown starting and ending on Hollywood Boulevard amongst the Walk of Fame Stars. Runners and walkers alike can expect a course that delivers iconic Hollywood landmarks, striking views of the Hollywood sign, a spin down the famed Melrose Avenue, and a finish line at Capitol Records.

As the newest, premier running event, Run Hollywood is focused on curating star-studded experiences for the modern runner. Participants can expect a red-carpet packet pick-up, a never-been-done-before course route, and a post-race party complete with champagne.
